Scott McClennan Speaks Out About Valerie Plame 'Outing' Scandal And A Whitehouse Awash With Liars At All Levels


So, we wonder.

Why is everyone so surprised to see Mr Scott McClennan standing up and saying straight out what many millions of us have known since day one anyway?

That the Bush White House is absolutely awash with a load of bloody bare faced liars.

Former press aide blames Bush in CIA leak case

WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Former White House Press Secretary
Scott McClellan
says in an upcoming book that he was misled by President George W. Bush and other high officials into misinforming the press about a CIA leak case that fueled debate about the Iraq war.

McClellan says he publicly exonerated former top White House aides Karl Rove and Lewis "Scooter" Libby because Bush had called on him to help restore his credibility after the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

"There was one problem. It was not true. I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president's chief of staff, and the president himself," McClellan said in an excerpt released on Tuesday.
Read the rest of Reuters' relevant report.

And after reading that be sure to see and hear what (the always uber kudos worthy), Keith Olbermann says - straight out.

Then, take a look at this statement issued just yesterday by the lady at the centre of this particularly controversial scandal, Valerie Plame herself.

If this latest revelation isn't sufficient to finally set some sort of impeachment process in motion, then we have to wonder exactly what the hell it will take.

So what took the jerk so long? He should have said all this a lot sooner than he has. He's still an accomplice not hero.

He's no better than those he's exposed. He spouted the crap he did for the same reasons as them - for money - they paid him well in the form of fat monthly pay packets.

And now he's blowing the whistle to make even more money from his book deal.

he's a media whore of the highest order.

Media whore? You bet he is. He probably used that title is his own CV when applying for the work, since he knew too well that THAT was an essential job requirement for the post of press secretary to Bushco.

Impeachment proceedings?

Sorry Richard, it won't happen. BushCheneyCo own the judiciary - and half the Democrat congress critters.

Well, Richard, I get more and more cynical. Impeachment? Not when the emperor and the empire are run by the guys that brung them - the corporations. It is a complete and utter quagmire of rampant fascism.

Sorry, but I'm another who thinks NOTHING will happen to these guys. They've actually made a GOOD job of their 'mission' - which was given to them by those already mentioned. Like it or not, corporations, conglomerates or whatever the heck you want to call them are the ones in charge.

As for impeachment - what difference will it make? What's done is done and whichever Dem candidate may get in next time round, will carry on dancing to the same tunes of the same pipers.

They are so busted... But, Democrats in Congress don't have the guts to impeach so we will have to deal with it after they are gone.

Happy Thanksgiving, Brit.
